Say Yes - to coffee!

Great news for the coffee lovers out there from Reuters in my morning paper - "Coffee helps women remember"........I am fairly selective about which researchers I pay attention to, wanting only good news of course, so I was pleased to discover that drinking more than three cups of coffee a day helps protect women against some age-related memory decline. The research was done in France, so we'll assume it was good coffee - I wonder if a croissant would help too - and the chance of these women having memory decline was 33% less. More good news is that drinking the equivalent in tea works as well!
Going out for a cappuccino, alone or with friends, is one of life's simple pleasures for me; cheap and relaxing, a chance to chat or catch up with the papers. Now I'll be doing it guilt-free - coffee, anyone?

Now I know why I need to have a latte before hitting the supermarket- it helps me remember my shopping list..............

I heard this on the news last night and I had to laugh. I usually have 3 cups of coffee in the morning! I don't think my memory's all the sharper for it, but I sure know I feel like a real dunce without 'em! :)
